Anonymous Leaks the Accounts of Spain’s Governing Party | Digital Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

Global hacktivist group Anonymous has leaked the 1990-2011 financial accounts of the governing Partido Popular (PP) [People's Party] to the Internet.

Recently, the judge overseeing the Gürtel case, an ongoing political corruption scandal in Spain that implicates PP members, asked for access to the documents dated since 1990 on the suspicion of illegal financing. The PP refused, claiming that they were only obligated turn in documents from the last five years.

Bernardo Gutiérrez's curator insight, June 30, 2013 1:57 AM

"ISTOÉ – O que há em comum entre os movimentos sociais contemporâneos?
MANUEL CASTELLS – Redes na internet, presença no espaço urbano, ausência de liderança, autonomia, ausência de temor, além de abrangência de toda a sociedade e não apenas um grupo. Em grande parte os movimentos são liderados pela juventude e estão à procura de uma nova democracia"

Rebelbook: A Mix of Technologies Let Dedicated Citizens Change Egypt | MIT Technology Review

Rebelbook: A Mix of Technologies Let Dedicated Citizens Change Egypt | MIT Technology Review | Digital Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

It started not with a Facebook group or Twitter hashtag but a paper form. The day before what may have been the largest protest in history (and undoubtedly the biggest in Egypt) Mahmoud Badr, spokesman for Tamarod – ‘Rebel’ in Arabic – announced that they had collected 22,134,465 documented signatures on petition sheets calling for President Morsi’s removal and new presidential elections. Although impossible to verify, the numbers Tamarod mobilized on the streets – one military source estimated 14 million Egyptians protested on June 30th – told their own story.

It was, joked the famous Egyptian political cartoonist Adeel, “a defeat of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg and a thunderous triumph for Xerox!” In fact, it was much closer to the mix of people simultaneously acting through the street and via modern technology, as I identified in my feature on the Arab Spring (see “Streetbook”).
